I would imagine most people would survive a nuclear blast as long as the blasts weren't scattered all around the globe. A nuclear bomb only has a radius of about 200 miles,right? I may be wrong on that...maybe someone can clarify...

Katrina is only a small example of what chaos can be like, but this will be far worse, if it should happen. No food, no clean water, no electric, no authority, etc. etc.
The terrorist stated they have plans to take things to grandeur scale, by hitting seven major cities. As per OBL 10 million people ("2 million must be children") is what he has asked a Saudi cleric permission for, that's an extremely large number of people.
Next month, in October the USA poplulation will increase to 300 million people. Is this a connection? I think so.
They have used the Art of War, warning us prior to attack.
They stated their next attack will be an "unexpected, unlikely, something not watched, not a landmark and more devastating than the WTC" type of an attack.
I have questioned what can be "unexpected", well that's easy, anything we are
not told or know about.
"Unlikely", what could be "unlikely"? Expecting "nuke", maybe that's not even it.
"Something not watched", well I think/believe they have everything covered and are protecting and watching everything. But what is "not being watched"?
"Not a landmark", well this would leave out major bridges, buildings, and tunnels etc. right? What's "not a landmark, that's not being watched"?
What could be "more devastating than the WTC"? That's more than 3,000 people.
I've looked at a number of attacks since Kobar Towers (Saudi 1996), to today's attack in Iraq on an Army base was very similiar. No not tactis, there is something else going on, that connects them all.
There is one common denominator that keeps reappearing in all attacks by AQ.
Take Kobar, WTC, Madrid, London and the attack that has occured today in Iraq on the Army base.
What do you see seeming to be going on that connects these attacks.

We're no longer dealing with a MAD situation, where millions will perish as cities across the globe are erased in a matter of minutes. Instead, we're dealing with terrorists who will likely use low kiloton detonations. So, statistically, you will survive. But how to survive in the long haul i.e., avoiding radiation fallout, future cancer, etc will depend on how you prepare. [Edited by Don W]
